06: Looking Into the Unknown and Shifting Horizons

Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
german language

Which technologies will decisively alter our lives? How do discoveries come to pass that lead to a radical change of thinking? Do worldwide changes happen by chance or is science driven by economic requirements? Today we have computer programmes that recognise global trends in the field of innovation – those who want to succeed in the competitive environment have to adopt these trends early on. Scientists will talk about their work and its value – they will give us an outlook to the future and show us that the horizon is not where we expect to see it.
